The Next Great TLC Reality Show Is…

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueReality TV

Well, this will fit RIGHT in on their primetime line-up!

Check out a clip from the brand new TLC reality show, called Extreme Couponing (above) which features individuals who are willing to dumpster dive to collect coupons - and in return save an unbelievable amount of money!

This woman only paid $2.64 for $638.64 worth of supplies! Absolutely insane!

Looks a lot less depressing than Hoarders, that's for sure!

    I have to give these coupon junkies credit for being so creative when it comes to saving money (except for the sumpster diving - that's over the top). They are way better than me and getting the best bang for their buck!



  2. 2

    I saw about 15 minutes of this show.
    -
    These women are ALSO hoarders, just using groceries for the obsession instead.
    -
    Poor damn husband married to this mess.

    TLC formerly known as "The Learning Channel", now know as "THE LOSER CHANNEL"!!!!!!!



  4. 4

    I watched this, this girl is clipping coupons but has JOE jeans on???? really? Her jacket is expensive as well.. saw it an neiman marcus!

    UHM, YOU DID NOT WATCH THE SHOW MARIO. ONE OF THOSE COUPONERS (?) was on her way to hoarding. She had 30 YEARS WORTH OF TOILET PAPER. She and her husband were doing their ”BIG' SHOPPING TRIP. Now, she already had 'stuff' in 2 rooms of the house and was attempting to take over his 'MAN CAVE' They went into the Market and got 150 boxes of each type of Pasta, I think it was 200 Butterfinger bars, and on and on. 9 carts full. A couple of hundred boxes of pasta ???? Sitting around for HOW LONG??? YUCK!!!!

    Good one and so true. lol

    i would rather pay full price RETAIL and not crawl through strangers' trash. the image alone gives me the heaves.



  8. 8

    There were 4 people, the one man, he had 2 different ringups at the market. The first, over $1000 ended up being $50 and he said it was because of the produce. The second ringup totalled $5,700. and ended up being $250. He 'buys' coupons by the bundle on line and he ended up with Total Cereal coupons and the cereal ended up FREE and he had enough for a Trailer load. He though was donating the 2nd ring up of cereal and other stuff to the local food pantry. Very very generous. Spending his time, which actually these people spend HOURS, DAYS, doing this and then donating it all to charity. NICE. Better than HOARDING. …..help me, I am drowning in 2 ply toilet paper…



  9. 9

    Definitely a form of hoarding but still cool. If I had tons of toilet paper, etc I would be DONATING to charity. You can save and also give away.



  10. 10

    which actually comes to the other show that PREMIERED RIGHT AFTER THAT…. STRANGE ADDICTIONS… people who ate toilet paper, (maybe they can look up the toilet paper hoarder?), a woman who slept with her blow dryer for over 24 years (on and against her body, causing burns all over), a woman who eats laundry detergent, a woman who eats sink cleanser (teeth are destroyed, lord only knows what her insides look like) and a man who 'wears' a car body on him. (YES, on the commercial, not shown yet). oh, and a 24 yo thumb sucker who wondered why everyone was looking at her sucking her thumb and a little piece of blanky



  11. 11

    I cannot wait until the reality TV show idea flops to the ground. I'm sick of this. I like the fun, cute reality shows. COUPONS!?? Really now…come on! How boring is that!



  12. 12

    I watched the show and how much they had. Not one person donated their food or donated their time to teach people who really need to learn it, like the unemployed, etc. I appreciate the work they do to get things for free, but how selfish they are.



  13. 13

    Forgot? I use to use coupons, but the food that you get is so unhealthy.



  14. 14

    Shelf life of even "non perishable" foods isn't all that long (maybe 1 to 2 years).
    The food would go bad before they even had a chance to eat it.
    Blech.

  15. emv77 says – reply to this


    15

    If she wants to be crazy and go through dumpsters, her choice. Putting your child in a dumpster to help you look? That is some bad parenting!



  16. 16

    The amount of food she had stocked up is basically hoarding. However I have to give the coupon people credit. If done right (and I've seen it) you can save hundreds of dollars a week on groceries. Its difficult to start getting into the habit though thats for sure

    Her pipes have got to be very clean, with a nice lemon smell.

    I watched this last night and was absolutely blown away. These people are completely mad, but holy crap to get as much as they got for a few dollars..

    I love your username!
    Have downed many bottles of Rombauer Pinot Noir.
    You must test drive it sometime.
    -
    During the halcyon days of living in Silicon Valley, in the late nineties, we would drive up to the Rombauer Wineries in Napa Valley. (The Joy of Cooking cookbook was written by the same Rombauer family.) We'd buy ourselves a couple of cases of Pinot and a Zinfindel. Their dessert wines are brilliant.
    -
    Those days are long gone, but will treat ourselves to a couple of bottles on my wedding anniversary.

    these people are greedy they have rooms fill with food that can last them 4 years to come and keep buying more food. They throw away food when it expires, wich is a waste of money. They should put their good use of cupponing to give back 2 peopl who don't have anything to eat. They're horders 2. Isn't there a limmit of how many can u buy with cupons u know 2 per customer.



  21. 21

    Re: PinotNoir_PLs – so what is she's wearing nice clothes? if you saved a ton of money on groceries, what would you spend it on? and if you were on national tv wouldn't you want to look good?
    the dumpster diving girl, joanie, is a friend of mine. she super sweet, and when she has excess, or food that will shortly expire she donates it to the food bank, and extra toiletries she donates to women's shelters. couponing is smart, bottom line.

    I'm the dumpster-divin, Joe's Jeans wearin, Krazy Coupon Lady in the clip above.
    I know I'm not your average 27 yr old, but I did save over $600 on my shopping trip, right? If someone offered you $600 to get in a newspaper-only recycle bin would you do it? Obviously that's not the point and I don't mind being called Krazy!
    If you want to learn more about how ANYONE can save a few bucks using coupons, visit TheKrazyCouponLady, or check out my youtube videos.

    Oh, and when you pay as little as I do for groceries, you can splurge on designer jeans. :)

    Thanks for the shout out Perez!



  23. 23

    How come she is wearing gloves when digging through the trash and her child isn't?



  24. 24

    Re: soda158 – you are right-I would want to look nice when I jump in a dumpster with my 3 year old and my pregnant friend to save $500!!! then I could buy my self a burberry purse.
    This show has inspired me to clip some coupons and save a few bucks.. cheers!!



  25. 25

    Re: luvs2tango – sounds delicious, any night is a good night with some red-red wine to make you feel so fine =)



  26. 26

    Damn, entertainment industry is really out of ideas huh? Reality TV is really overexposed.



  27. 27

    My parents clipped coupons as we grew up too, and we always joked about them being so cheap, but nothing in comparison to THIS! There is noo need for the amount of "stuff" that they buy, I did watch the previews which lead me to watch the whole show and I laughed through it. But really there was only ONE of them who actually does donate a lot of his products to charity, and with all that stuff in storage they should all be donating, because half of it will go bad or expire before they even get a chance to use it, and one lady even noted that, she has piles that have to be used up first before they expire and her husbans is "NOT" allowed to pick from other piles. For some this did start out as a nessecity and way to get by its great for saving a bit of money here or there..but this is going to the extreme. The most I've ever saved from my grocery bill was $20 in coupons off a $50 bill and I thought that was huge

    Serve the Pinot with some fresh Morel Mushroom Risotto (or Porcini's as a substitute) made with homemade broth.
    Love a good Gamay Beaujolais as well!

    The real issue is "balance" in your life.
    -
    Of course, clipping coupons saves money and is a good thing.
    It made me wish I was diligent in this area.
    I too feel motivated from the show, to at least do some basics because I have never clipped coupons before.
    -
    Too much of anything is debilitating!
    -
    There's a reason why the word "extreme" is in the title.
    All these women are out of control and are in denial about it.
    Going through trash with your kids is just child abuse.
    -
    We are in America, and have been fortunate to be "higher in the food chain" than the poor kids in the Philippines scavenging for food in the mountains of trash.
    What a legacy to teach your children. Shameful.

    Since when is "The Learning Channel" just a bunch of reality shows about weirdos? This women is buying large amounts of items that she doesn't even need, which defeats the purpose of using them in the first place. Clearly this is abnormal obsessive behavior.



  31. 31

    The show chose the most extreme cases to highlight the point. The point was that if you used coupons and looked for sales, you'd have more money to buy other stuff. Why pay 4.99 for something that costs 19 cents to manufacture, 12 cents to ship and 1 cent to stock? I rarely use coupons but I do look for sales. If my favorite pasta sauce is half price, I buy 10. If I see a coupon for a product that I buy regularly, I clip it.



  32. 32

    wish I knew how to do this.



  33. 33

    This is ridiculous and to have her TODDLER sitting INSIDE the dumpster, paper only or not that is just revolting! Bitch needs help. :roll: Ahh, well just another TLC show I WONT BE WATCHING! :D



  34. 34

    Re: emv77 – those were my thoughts exactly!



  35. 35

    MAYBE THEY CAN GET KATE GOSSELIN OR SARAH PALIN TO GET ON THIS. THAT FUCKING PALIN BITCH SINGLEHANDEDLY RUINED ALL THINGS ALASKA.



  36. 36

    Way to screw up your child! I hope children's aid has something to say about that!



  37. 37

    Re: Hesnotintou – thats exactly what i was thinking. we buy all we think we need every week at the supermarket and try and plan which days it all needs to be eaten on but food still sometimes goes to waste



  38. 38

    i felt bad for the clerks in the grocery stores that had to help these people load all their groceries that they got practically for free.. the couponers are costing the grocery stores money to shop there.
    the show would have been better if it'd shown those food hoarders ( all crappy food, by the way) donating it to help less fortunate people. what was that guy going to do with over 250 toothbrushes put them in a trophy room ???
    i won't be watching that show again.



  39. 39

    Re: Joanie Demer – what a Good sport! Lol… Good for you! Hope you hand your family have a great new year! Im sure you will with all that money you saved!! :)



  40. 40

    I watched this on tv a few days ago and i dont agree with it becoming a tv show, granted i am thrilled that people have found a way to eat in these hard times but if many people catch on to this the companies will go broke or stop the coupon thing. And i nearly cried when i watched this, i live in Canada where this isnt allowed and i wish it was. I wouldn't have starved for 6 months. My grocery budget was 75 bucks per month which was only shopping at Costco for bread, cheese, soup cans, kraft dinner and french fries. Very healthy. Its a shame so many people have to go hungry when its apparently so easy to fix it.



  41. 41

    Coupons are great but should not become an obessions. Having watched the show it seemd like these people were just buying things because they could get them for free not because they necessarily needed them. It was sad to see ow much time they spent couponing. And I couldnt help but notice how all of them were buying junk and processed food. i would rather pay full price and eat healthy.



  42. 42

    how long has it been since TLC was actually the learning channel?



  43. 43

    Wow good job for people who didn't watch the show or like 15 minutes of it and go all the way judging. By the way yes the first person was a horder and maybe the 4th guy but Joanie and that lady from Philly are not. And at least Joanie does give to charity, and the 4th guy too, and the Philly lady teaches classes about couponing. I read Joanie's blog daily and she wrote about what was true and what the show made believe. She writes a lot on her blog about donating, but they never mentioned that she does on the show. And she doesn't really dumpster dive, she searches through recycling bins. TLC just sensationalized the idea for the ratings.



  44. 44

    PurseONally… i thlnk the show "Hoarders" is visual prozac….just when you think your running bad game on cleaning out a utility closet, refrigerator, etc… You see that show, & you're not doing bad at all. Gawd bless 'em!



  45. 45

    Re: miss hot mess – The store is riembursed for the face value of the coupon. If the store did not want to deal with coupons then they would simply not accept them.



  46. 46

    I loved this show.. and was jealous at the same time!! i don't have the time, skill set or patience to clip coupons and spend hours calculating deals..but dang this show actually made me rethink shopping.. ive signed up for a few online coupon sites since hoping to at least score a couple good deals. However, I do feel as though some of the things they purchase (like the man with all the deoderant and toothbrushes) is just compusive and wasteful. It was nice that he donated the cereal.. but the deoderant thing is just greedy



  47. 47

    Re: Austin TX – you are actually incorrect.. the one guy donated a bunch of the cereal to the local pantry….
